RUNAWAY SOCIAL SYMPATHY

Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

GOOGLE’S BLACK EYE FOR GREEN ENERGY
Investor’s Business Daily

(condensed)

Back in 2007 Google commanded headlines with its high-tech venture in green renewable energy. In launching the project, company executives boasted they would prove that wind and solar power were not just good for the environment, but that solar energy could be produced profitably on a mass scale to replace dirty coal and even natural gas.

Now comes a most remarkable admission from Google that the technology just doesn’t work. Two of the lead scientists on the project wrote the following devastating critique of the future of green energy: “At the start we had shared the attitude of many stalwart environmentalists: We felt that with steady improvements to today’s renewable energy technologies, our society could stave off catastrophic climate change. We now know that to be a false hope.”

President Obama continues to pump billions of dollars of loan guarantees, construction, grants, tax credits and mandates for renewable energy, which he calls the power source of the 21st century. If Google can’t make renewable energy work, does anyone really think Washington can?
